January 29, 2018 Morning Verse Of The Day

16:16 she pressed him. Delilah did precisely what Samson’s wife had done earlier (14:17). Samson’s weak character shows through again: he did not learn from his previous mistake, but yielded in both cases.[1]


16:16 his soul grew impatient to the point of death Delilah may have withheld sexual favors from Samson since he kept coming to her day after day.[2]


16:16 Delilah pestered him, just as Samson’s wife had done earlier (14:17). Samson’s foolishness prevented him from learning the lesson of his earlier experience.[3]
